Laura Chau Dimbala PDF
Dimbala by Laura Chau is a classic henley neck pullover with a fun, easy to knit tiled stitch pattern. A deep hem of neat twisted ribbing and slightly cropped length create a great silhouette, perfect for work or play. The body of Dimbala is worked in the round from the hem to the underarm, then split for front and back and worked back and forth separately. Sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm, then worked back and forth for cap and sewn in. This sweater is designed to be close-fitting and meant to be worn with minimal ease (0–2”).
